Designed to explore the organization of international programs providing service to voluntary and governmental agencies which aid the disabled, the International Research Development Project analyzed current patterns of organizing rehabilitation services, methods of training personnel, barriers to communication and understanding, and methods of disseminating research information. Through examination of such sources as the International Project Information Service, the International Research Referral Service, the Eleventh World Conference, and the Multilingual Rehabilitation Terminology References, the Project attempted to evaluate the international need for improved rehabilitation services in both economically developed and developing areas. It was recognized that multidisciplinary cooperation in the international rehabilitation field is too complex to formulate static conclusions; therefore, the results of the study indicated a variety of procedures and broad areas for further study. Appendixes present additional data including reports on rehabilitation services in the Philippines and Nigeria, and information on selected conference participants. (RD)
